DNA vaccine may offer future sterilization option for cats and dogs

Over the years, researchers have explored various non-surgical options to spay and neuter surgery but as yet, have not come up with a viable option. (NEWStat reported on some of these options previously.) But a new player may be emerging. Researchers from the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena have developed an intramuscular injection that results in long-term infertility in male and female mice, and which could have future implications for cats and dogs. Results were published on Oct. 5 in Current Biology.

Stress in cats is manageable, new data shows

Like humans, our feline counterparts experience stress. And it happens, as you’d guess, from the same triggers: change, conflict, and a feeling of having little control over a situation. But stress is manageable. And new data, published in the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery on June 22 by the School of Veterinary Science at the Autonomous University of Barcelona, in Spain, shows how. It outlines the causes and cures of stress in owned cats.

Penn Vet studies effects of IV fluid on circulation during surgery

AAHA and the AAFP recommend the use of fluid therapy during even minor procedures, but not all hospitals act on the recommendation - usually due to added costs. In an attempt to more accurately gauge the importance of giving IV fluids for a wide range of surgical procedures, researchers from Penn Vet collaborated with experts from Abbott Laboratories and Colorado State University to monitor the blood flow of dogs undergoing spay surgeries.

Bald eagle’s bill repaired

This time of year, along the California-Oregon border, bald eagles are preparing to make their annual pilgrimage to the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge, according to the National Wildlife Federation. Luckily for one bald eagle, he won’t miss the enclave. On Sept. 7, the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) announced the successful repair of a 6.8-pound, male bald eagle’s bill after he was transferred to the UC Davis veterinary hospital from Shasta Wildlife Rescue several months ago.

Food puzzles have positive impacts on felines

Games for cats have existed for some time. However, games in the form of food puzzles, that is, devices that release food when an animal interacts with them, offer added benefits, according to a new study. Researchers from the University of Georgia Veterinary Teaching Hospital in Athens, Ga.; the University of California at Berkeley; and Ohio State University collaborated with cat behaviorists and concluded that food puzzles could positively impact feline health and behavioral issues. The final study was published in the September issue of the Journal of Feline Medicine and Surgery.
